Organized Trek/Camping Trek: 

Camping trek is best called as Fully Organized Supported Trek. As exploratory or mountaineering expeditions, camping Trek is also organized in the same style. Camping trek includes a team of guide, cook, Sherpa, & porters to give you accompany. Our company manages all trekking gears, food, fuel, & personal belongings, & our cooks & assistant prepares hot meals & carry out, supervises the whole operations. Trekkers should carry only small bag or what they might need during the day. At night, they are provided dining tents, sleeping tents, & toilet tents. They are also provided with mattresses and down sleeping bags, all of which are carried for them with the party. Even tables and chairs are carried.

In a typical Camping Trek, we start trek around 6 a.m. with a cup of hot tea & you are provided a bowl of warm water for their washing & cleaning. After packing up their stuff and daypack, the trekkers are requested to leave their camp & have a breakfast. The trek begins around 7.30 - 8 a.m. All camping equipment’s & gears will be packed by our well-trained staff, and then the porters carry them to the next camping site. Personal belongings of the trekkers they may need for the day like water bottle, themselves should carry rain gear, camera, etc.

The Trekkers decision can depend upon his or her own on time for viewing the beautiful landscape, taking photographs and resting or making a short pause. The walk to lunch spot will normally take 3 hours. Upon your arrival, you are served hot lunch by our cook & assistant.

Our experienced cook/ assistant will prepare a variety of healthy & wholesome food taking care of your health, which is carried for the entire trek.

Tea House Trek/ Lodge Trek:

In this type of trek we can stay in the accommodation units available on the trail. This is less expensive than camping trek and is less hectic as we will use available accommodation and foods prepared in the family owned guesthouses. These treks include food accommodation, guide and porters (if required)

A Teahouse Trekking is enormously standard even if it is local run guesthouse. Teahouse trek is very popular in the well - developed tourist regions including Annapurna, Everest and Langtang - Helambu regions where western, continental meals, Nepalese meal (Dhalbhat), and good accommodation with attached bathroom with hot and cold shower are available in most of the places. This type of trekking offers you good food, good accommodation in the available teahouses & lodges.

Backpacking Trek:

The backpacking approach of a light pack, stove, freeze-dried food and a tent really is not an appropriate way to trek in Nepal. So much food is available in hill villages that it doesn't make much sense to try to be totally self-sufficient while trekking. This is true throughout Nepal except in the high mountains above 4500m backpackers violate two cardinal rules for travellers in Nepal. Because they are self-sufficient, they do not contribute to the village economy. Also, they must do so many camp chores that they do not have the time or energy to entertain the villagers that will gather to watch them.

At higher altitudes, however, the backpacking approach works. Depending on the terrain and local weather conditions, villages are found up to 4000m, but above this there isn't much accommodation available except in tourist areas such as Annapurna Sanctuary and Everest. It is also difficult to arrange to hire porters who have the proper clothing and footwear for travelling in cold and snow. If you plan to visit these regions, you may wish to alter your trekking style and utilize a backpacking or mountaineering approach to reach high passes or the foot of remote glaciers.

A good solution is to leave much of your gear behind at a temporary "base camp" in the care of a hotel or trustworthy Sherpa. You can then spend a few days carrying a reduced load of food and equipment on your own. This will provide you with the best of both worlds: an enriching cultural experience that conforms to the standards and traditions of the country in the lowlands, and a wilderness or mountaineering experience in the high mountains

Guide Accommodation Porter Service:

For limited budget trek or backpacking, we arrange a guide and enough porters to make your trek more feasible and rewarding. Backpacking adventures is more ideal for wilderness seekers accompanied by local porters and guides helps in path findings, buying any provisions, arranging places to sleep or any other essential tasks.
